FREMONT, CA: Working from home is more common now than it has ever been. Not only has technology made it easier for employees to work remotely, but the coronavirus epidemic has resulted in an unprecedented number of remote workers as businesses attempt to prevent the virus's spread. While there are numerous benefits to remote work, there are also some drawbacks for both businesses and their employees.

Communication is critical to a company's success. However, when employees work from home, it can be more difficult for them to communicate with one another and with their superiors than when they work in an office.

How to stay connected with their employees when they're working remotely:

Using Video Communication

If HRIS does not currently support video conferencing, there are other software choices available, including Zoom. Video communication is an excellent approach to simulate as much as possible the in-person communication of an office setting. This can make remote workers feel more connected to their coworkers and managers. Working remotely can be isolating for some, and video communication can assist in alleviating this. Managers can check in with their employees one-on-one as well as organize group meetings to which everyone is invited.

Communicate through a Chat App

Many businesses utilize a communication service such as Slack or Google Hangouts to communicate informally and rapidly among team members or in groups. Such a function may be available in a company's HRIS as well. Employees can swiftly communicate with one another using chat software in order to collaborate on tasks. They can even utilize this type of software to remotely replicate what would be water cooler banter at an office.

Employees must have a solid rapport with one another in order to work effectively together. This type of bonding is necessary for excellent teamwork and staff morale.
